Description

Starting on the north end, this trail is quite easy and pleasant for the first half mile as it winds through aspen and pine forest. It breaks out into semi-desert territory and begins to climb for quite a while - enjoy the wide open views and of the pine and aspen forests covering the Abajos.

Eventually, you head back into forest for a rocky stretch of trail. Though the trail doesn't climb or descend much here, it will take some time to navigate the rocks.

You'll hit the Robertson Pasture Trail, which you can take to a high saddle point (10,500') between Twin Peaks. This trail soon ends where it ingloriously hits a dirt road.
